[UMA-discussion] Revamped categories?

Sometimes there are worthwhile works that don't make it into the
Ursa's Recommended Anthropomorphic List ... for whatever reason
(maybe the furries who knew, forgot to email the Ursa awards).
Would like to suggest that the Ursa awards have aNotable Works from Past Years
category.(perhaps have the category every 2 or 3 years?)


[UMA-discussion] Adjusting the nomination process

I did read the replies. I would ask them if any of them voted, and if they did,
did they vote for that one.

Sounds to me more like they are justifying it.

I think it is a travesty what College Humor did to the Ursa Major Awards. I
don’t know who nominated Furry Force, but give me a break. Is this something we
want representing the Furry Fandom...and awarding it for doing so?
This is not the first time that something has been nominated and won that one
wonders if it truly represents the furry fandom. Avatar won for best picture.

I was just noticing that when it comes to the awards, many of them seem to go
to non-furs. Such categories as:

Best Motion Picture
Best Dramatic Series or Short Work

Fred (et al):

MWFF may just be out of luck this time around, unfortunately. I agree with Fred
that more cons need to get cool art from their souvenir books up on line to be
seen. But I think it also behooves the artists themselves to point out that

I notice a Bill Thomas mentioned as helping with "Furtherance", too. Presumably
the same Bill?

WikiFur lacks an article on him; contributions are welcome!


[UMA-discussion] is "Circles: The Years Keep Rolling By" a 2014 publication or 2015 publication?

This sounds like the tactic used by Oscar contenders: Play for a week in Los
Angeles to qualify, then release nationwide in January/February after

Noticed Circles: The Years Keep Rolling
By ( https://www.rabbitvalley.com/item_9216_1294___Circles-The-Years-Keep-Rolling-By-Andrew-French-Scott-Fabianek-S.html  )isn't
in the Ursa Recommended Anthropomorphics List.
 Am wondering which year should be considered its publication date (in terms of
what Ursa list and Ursa awards it should be considered for)


New logo needed?

Being a fan of bears in general the logo for the Ursa Major awards has always
bugged me.
